Trying to find the location of the old Pierce & Payne Collage on a map. It is suppose to be located between 10 mile Bayou and Old Pleasant Hill on SH 175. There is a Historical marker on the road showing the location. No idea what remains of the old college. Any photos would be great. Thank you.

You are correct in that there is a metal marker on the side of highway 175 about 3 miles north of Pleasant Hill, LA, however, that is all that is there. There is nothing there to show that the college was ever there.

Thank you for the information. I think I found the marker at 31.86154,-93.5566 (Google Maps). It looks like the correct marker shape but Google has blurred out the writing. Can you tell if this is correct location? Thank you.

I'm not up on all those Google Map numbers, and there are many of this type of markers around the state, all being the same shape, but the one in question is about 2 1/2 miles North of Pleasant Hill, Louisiana on LA Hwy 175. If you include your e-mail address, I will take a picture of it and send it to you if you want one.
